Clean bed linen. Good wlan in the stairway. Some bathrooms I liked... Some I disliked. I liked the door of my room, felt safe. In front of the hostel is a quiet street, which is very good. To the next subway station its only five minutes by foot. But, there is not a single cupboard which guest can lock.

The toilets were clogged and dirty water in all the ground surrounding it. The room was very stuffy and smelled of whatever incense the other occupants were using. the luggage storage is not a luggage storage it's just the staff throwing the bags in whatever space left behind where they sit in the "office". The carpets are torn and smelled someone can fall and hurt themselves

Don't expect any luxuries,but this is a suitable inexpensive option to stay in Central London with sightseeing and shopping just around the corner. -Good showers(hot/good pressure).Bathrooms get cleaned at least twice a day! -Kitchen functional,if sllghtly underequipped.-TV room cosy,but a bit small. I would have had a enjoyable time here,if it wasn't for a lunatic spanish couple in my room(12),think crazy bit**,a.k.a. Chica super loca and her un-happy in love acquaintance,Senor Tonto Desperado

I booked the cheapest room which was in a 10 bed mixed room and when I got there they put me in a 4 bed female room which was a great surprise. The room had a wardrobe, plugs and beds were clean and the girls I shared the room with said that mainly people were here working which was good for me. The only problem I had was my key for the room didn't work but luckily there was always someone in the room to open the door. The toilets and showers were clean and there was never a queue to use them.

OK BUT CLAMBING THE STAIRS TO THE 4TH FLOOR WAS A BIT OF A DRAG EVERY TIME

I never slept in a worse bed before, if wasn't so cold i i'd slept on the floor, even camping could be more comfortable.

It's the cheapest hostel in London - you should not be going there expecting anything else. You get what you pay for

The staff was nice other than that it's more like a half way house rather than a hostel.you get what you pay for though, The location is great and it's cheap to stay.but no fridge! And when I left my good outside my window it was taken! Wifi doesn't work in the room so have to sit on the corridor and then you get removed from there.some of the bathrooms have more pubic hair than me on my whole body.the guests are mostly men in Their 40ies with very poor personal hygiene

I remember last year when i called this hostel, the rude staff made me cry of anger in the phone and just hanged up!!! I was only staying in this hostel because no other hostels had any available beds! When arriving to the hostel, it seems like people from east Europe have been staying there for quite a while. The toilet was filled up with water, couldn't use it. No fridge to the food. The room smells like it have never had an open window. Noisy beds. Advice to the receptionists: smile!

When i first saw the past reviews of this hostel, i was expecting something quite different from what i ended up seeing. The location I think is pretty good as it has a Tube Station very near (5 min walking or less) it has a couple of cheap souvenirs stores and a small mall close as well. Although this is not a party hostel, you can move in london by bus or tube and won't have any trouble finding a place to spend the night. It was also cheap compared to other hostels and the rooms were ok.
